Do You Remember "Where the Sidewalk Ends"?

Authors of children's books can make a huge impact on the worldview of impressionable young readers. One of the most memorable authors is beloved children's poet Shel Silverstein, whose works were recently featured in our Banned Books Week display. Selections from his treasured poetry collections have been banned from school or public libraries due to content that some believe is inappropriate for children. If you have never read Silverstein's work, or if it has been a long time since you visited "Where the Sidewalk Ends," check out one of these titles from the NCC Libraries and judge for yourself.
